A bit dated, but not so much if you're talking about middle-class
girls. That is, many still believe that only poor girls think that
unwed motherhood is glamorous or a sign of status.

One thing that puzzles me, though, is: Regarding the paternity issue,
why was there no mention of comparing blood types? Sure, that wouldn't
have CONFIRMED paternity, but it can certainly prove that a boy is NOT
the father, so it's a good, cheap way of eliminating at least one or
two candidates, even in the days before DNA tests. (But then, who
knows what the circumstances were in their neighborhood.)

Hah ha hah. That ridiculous letter was not written by a teenage girl.
Trolls were around long before the internet. If not a clever troll, it was
an Ann Landers intern. Srsly.

What's ridiculous about it?

Truth is stranger than fiction.

See the 1980s book by Washington Post reporter Leon Dash: "When
Children Want Children." (That IS about poor teens, I should mention.)
